We recently received an email from Chef Luciano's (49 E. Cermak) that most of their renovations are done:
After a two week break during which we remodeled both the facade and the customer areas at Chef Luciano and Gourmet Chicken, we are back up and running. We want to thank you for your support through this process and hope you are just as excited as we are about the new space. Stop in, say Hi, and see what has happened!
If you didn't know, here is some additional information about their renovations:
While work will be done to modernize the restaurant, Gupta is also restoring the building at Cermak Road and Wabash Avenue to its former 1920s glory. The Cermak building housed Chicago ’s first White Castle restaurant in 1929. The Chicago Landmark Commission is overseeing the renovation, as Chef Luciano & Gourmet Chicken falls into the Motor Row historic preservation area.
“We realize the importance of preserving the past of this great neighborhood, so we wanted to keep that in mind as we look to the future,” Gupta said. “We’re excited to be able to invest in the community and look forward to serving our customers in an exciting new space.”
We've been impressed with most everything we've had at the restaurant and this renovation should help attract some new customers. Good luck to them!
